Aboboi is the Ghanaian name for Bambara nuts or beans. It looks very similiar to chickpeas and I must say tastes similar too. It is one of those dishes that falls into a delicacy and not so often eaten category. The reason being that it takes a long time to cook and usually people aren’t sure how to cook it to get at creamy and tasty sauce.
I personally find the taste to be a bit bland when cooked the traditional way of just boiling the bambara nuts until soft and adding a bit of sugar for taste. Hence I have found a way of adding a little bit of flavour to my bambara nuts sauce. So I am sharing with you how I add extra flavour.
I will recommend using a pressure cooker to cook your bambara nuts.
